A lot of trail clean up has been done since I was last on it. Many new blue diamond markers. Always a great hike. We hiked in a couple miles on Friday and set up at rock camp, conducted day hikes on Saturday, hiked out on Sunday.

nice hike. you would never know falls were there if you dont leave the trail to see them.

This was a great hike. Trees still down on trail, But not enough to deter the hike at all. It’s a beautiful view at spy rock and I’ll be doing it again for sure. Two really pretty waterfalls after a rainy week.

Great views. The path in/out is very rocky and steep. Also muddy when I went. Worth it to get to end, but hiking out is extremely taxing. I’ve never hiked with trekking poles, but I feel like they would have come in handy on this trail.

We went back the weekend of January 19 and turned off the main road to Ruggles Cascade. You can see those Waypoints on the map. There are two ways down: either as shown (following a creek ... slippery), or a little earlier at these coordinates: 34.97873 -94.27601

The distance from Dillard's Ferry to Spring Creek Road is 6.1 miles, not 11.6 miles as noted in the above description. I had to put in a star rating to make this post but I have yet to hike it. The mileage is corrected based on Buffalo River Handbook by K.L. Smith (2018) and examining maps.

We hiked from Erbie to Pruitt - 8.6 miles. Erbie Trailhead is accessed by County Road 2500 (old 79) gravel but good and Pruitt on State Highway 7. The bridge on State Highway 7 is being replaced and construction will occur there for another year but this will not impact your ability to park at the Pruitt trailhead. Of the four segments (day hikes from TH to TH) we hiked from Boxley to Pruitt this was the second best hike. There are a good number of areas where the trail crosses cedar glades and there will be water in the trail after a recent rain - the soil is thin and once saturated, drains into the trail tread. In places it is slippery and mucky. Much of this segment skirts along the bluff top right above the Buffalo River but alas there are so many trees there is "almost" never a clear view of the river or bluffs. Adair Cemetery was an interesting spot and the Ozark Campground has restrooms and the bluffs there are beautiful. The restrooms at Pruitt are closed for the winter but the town of Jasper is just a few miles south where you can get fuel and good food right on the town square. The trail is marked with white rectangles and wooden signs and, although few and far between, they occur at the right spots. The trail tread is well established and you won't get lost. You will encounter "ORT" signs designating the "Old River Trail" but that trail is best hiked in summer since multiple crossing of the river must occur. On this segment of the "BRT", Buffalo River Trail, you will not cross the river. You will encounter bluffs, rock outcrops and many side streams with beautiful boulders, cascades and waterfalls. We hiked 2 days after a significant rain and all water features were really flowing. I recommend the book, "Buffalo River Handbook," Second Edition (2018) by Kenneth L. Smith, for in-depth info about the National River and a step-by-step of the trail. Also, National Geographic's map "Buffalo National River West" has good road designation, trailhead location and other information useful in planning your hike. Alltrails has excellent information about this trail and nearby trails too. Happy Hiking!

A drive down a forest service road is necessary to get to the trailhead. My F150 handled it well, but I wouldn't recommend trying it in a car. Most of the hike is down an old road and is pretty easy going. The very last part includes mild bushwacking through the woods following orange ribbons and a steep rocky decline. After a large rainfall there is a lot of debris at the base of the falls. I didn't see an easy way around it and since I was by myself I didn't press my luck climbing over the trees and other debris. I guess it all must have been washed over the falls. It must have been spectacular but I'm glad I wasn't there to see it.

Most of the hike is along an easy trail. The last part of it is mild bushwacking following some orange ribbons through the woods. Then it becomes steep and rocky. The bottom of the falls has a lot of debris, large fallen trees and things that have been sweep over the falls. I included a picture of the debris. This is real nature and has not been cleaned up Recent rain had the flow up and I didn't see an easy way around the dead fall so I didn't get right up at the base of the falls. still, it was worth the trip. The road leading to the trailhead is a forest service road. My F150 handled it well but I would not recommend taking a car

A fun hike. Well marked and easy to follow. We started to the left (clockwise) and went up rocky switch backs first. Not as scenic as other hikes in the area but still a good hike with fun terrain.

Conditions were wet and muddy as the trees dripped water from their icy branches due to a storm the night before. None the less the hiking was still good with a beautiful overlook of the buffalo river atop steep cliffs.

First hiked in early November during peak fall foliage. Weather was perfect and the leaf colors made for amazing views from the bluff. Descending the trail is very rocky and parts are steep going down. Wear the right shoes! Ascending is mostly uphill and a great workout. If you have the stamina, take the extra work to hike from the bluff down to the river. Nice flat trails through the trees at the bottom of the mountain. Take a quick swim to cool off, there was no one else down there when I went down.

Completed this trail on 1/4/2020. Took my 2 daughters, age 12, and 10 on their first ever backpacking trip. Went clockwise to get them ready for the climb. Arrived late Friday around 5 and was rush to find a spot before sunset. Next morning the girls decided they could complete the rest of the trail in one day, which we did. As rating this trail hard, if 2 girls aged 12, and 10 can do it on their first trip, then it’s not too hard. Trail was easy to follow although there were no blazes.

I am a fan of this trail. As a rock climber looking at the rock formations and the rock landscapes are really cool. it doesn't really have a lookout. There are tiny spots with little lookout. Its a very introperspective hike. all the focus is in the woods. It's really cool.

Although this wasn’t one of the top rated trails, we were very happy with it. I was concerned about hiking some of the other trails which described river crossings. I did not want to attempt a river crossing in January with 40 degree weather. This trail was picturesque following the creek. Lots of small creek crossings with plenty of rocks to step on to avoid getting wet boots. It took us about 3.5 hours. We saw only 1 group of 4 college student hikers. The main concern for us was the poor road conditions. Lots of rocks and gravel. Not a problem for a truck, Jeep or SUV. Not ideal for a Prius. I had to drive 10-15 miles/hour and still hit some large rocks probably doing some undercarriage damage.

Was awesome to do in January. No bugs, fewer people. The most epic of views! Definitely not for those with a fear of heights. Take lots of water and snacks, its a long hike. Also coming back is pretty steep uphill at times so be prepared to save some water for when you'll really want it.
